Grants of up to £30,000 for war memorial conservation

The War Memorials Trust is offering grants of up to £30,000 towards the protection and conservation of war memorials throughout the UK.

The grants are intended to support repair and conservation works that manage the natural process of decay without damaging the memorial’s overall appearance, altering the features that give it its historic or architectural significance, or unnecessarily disturbing or destroying historic fabric. These include:

  • Conservation.
  • Like-for-like repair.
  • Structural repair/stabilisation.
  • Reinstatement of lost elements that form an integral part of the design.
  • Professional condition surveys and structural reports.

Applicants will be required to raise 25% of the cost of the project and priority will be given to those memorials in greatest need. Applications concerning memorials that have an up-to-date listing on War Memorials Online will be processed more quickly.
